BUTTERNUT CREEK RECREATION AND NATURE AREA

Butternut Creek Recreation and Nature Area is located off Kinne Road between Butternut Drive and Cedar Bay Road. This 67.5-acre parcel has a 0.7 mile paved pathway that connects Kinne Road to the Wegmans parking area on Genesee Street. It features wooded areas, Butternut Creek, freshwater wetlands, and a vernal pool.

 

The newly completed wooden boardwalk provides a loop through the forested uplands and hugs the edge of the wetland. On the north end of the board walk lays a newly created vernal pool that provides critical habitat for frogs and toads. In addition to the boardwalk and paved trail, other amenities include native gardens, benches donated by the DeWitt Rotary, a newly paved parking area on Kinne Road, and a stone dust trail and footbridge that provides a safe connection to the Old Erie Canal Historic State Park.

 

Parking is available on Kinne Road and also in the on the west side of Wegmans. The enhancements to this area have been made through a collaborative effort between the Town of DeWitt, DeWitt Rotary Club, Wegmans, National Grid, NYS Canal Corporation, The Edgewater Company, LLC, Community Bank, and other partners.

 

Future plans include the construction of an inclusive trail leading to an accessible fishing dock on Butternut Creek. To make a donation or volunteer, contact Mike Moracco at (315) 446-3910 x 136.
